EarZoom featuring Music Tech Fest – #MTFCentral

IRZU is glad to announce the EarZoom sonic arts festival 2015, which will be featuring Music Tech Fest – #MTFCentral – taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia between the 18th and 21st September 2015.

Music Tech Fest is the festival of music ideas which gathers developers, musicians, researchers, labels, startups and makers in the quest for new formats for music. The festival has previously been hosted by the Barbican Centre in London, the MAC Centre in Wellington New ZealandMicrosoft NERD Centre in Cambridge MAFactory BerlinCentre Pompidou in Paris and the Sliperiet Centre in Scandinavia. Music Tech Fest is now on a mission to capture developer and music maker talent from Central Europe with #MTFCentral 18-20 September at the impressive Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana.

At #MTFCentral developers and makers will have access to #MusicBricks – exclusive tools developed by some of the best music tech research centres in Europe – which will allow them to invent new controllers, apps and music environments. They will be joined by the likes of Graham Massey (808 State), Matt Black (Coldcut, Ninja Tune), Reeps One and Nitin Sawhney to invent the future of music.

 

#MusicBricks wraps the top tools developed by some of the best European music tech centres (Ircam at the Centre Pompidou, Music Technology Group in Barcelona, TU Vienna and Fraunhofer IDMT) into APIs, GUIs and TUIs. The toolkit includes a postage stamp sized micro board with low latency for gesture driven music apps which has proven extremely popular. In month 6 of the project #MusicBricks generated half a million in social reach and 8 startup ideas which are now being supported to prototype.
